Issac came into rescue at about 12 weeks old. For one so young he’d already built up a bit of a complicated history. We got him when someone was asking a dog rescue to take him in. Theo joined him a couple of weeks later, a refugee from a home where he’d been bullied and hurt by the children in the house.
Update 12 August: These two lovely boys are now reserved for adoption
Whatever has happened in the past they’re both very friendly, loving boys who want to snuggle , and to play and be friends with the other cats here. Sadly the other cats aren’t returning the favour. Since they’ve moved into a twin room and have space to themselves they’re happy as anything.
Isaac has been neutered and microchipped, and just completed his initial course of vaccinations. We’re pretty sure all is fine healthwise … though it was difficult for Dr Fran to hear his heart above the sounds of purring. Theo is a two or three weeks younger than Isaac. He’s started his vaccs and is booked in for neuter and chip on 17 August. He’s looking forward to his op as Isaac has explained how its a day of lovely nurses loving and admiring you. Theo’s health check was fine, other than ear mites which are being sorted with ear drops.
They’ll be best staying indoors until they’re bigger .. about 6 months old maybe. After that they’d like a safe garden they can explore and run off their crazy kitten energy in. We do strongly recommend that cats are kept indoors during hours of darkness, with access to a litter tray, for the rest of their lives for reasons of safety.
They’d fit quite happily into any family who are around quite a bit of the time and can give him plenty of love and attention. I think with careful introductions they’d be ok with other pets, and be fine with kids who knew how to treat a pet with care.
We always homecheck prior to adoption and ask a minimum adoption donation of £80 for a neutered kitten. There’s more about our adoption process here: http://www.8livescatrescue.org/adoption-process.html and you may find some more photos and stories about him (and our other cats) on our blog: https://8livescatrescue.wordpress.com/ and facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/8Lives/
